Why you Need an Attorney for Municipal Court

If you are convicted of even minor offenses in New Jersey, you could experience significant and long-lasting consequences, including jail time, probation, fines, and a damaging criminal record. Without an experienced attorney representing you, you're more likely to end up with a negative outcome. By contrast, a defense attorney with experience in the New Jersey municipal courts can work to get you a better result, whether it's negotiating for lenient penalties, lesser charges, or even a dismissal of the charge completely. Your attorney can also coordinate your application to any diversionary programs for which you might be eligible, such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge. Completion of the program results in having the charges dropped so you can avoid a criminal record.
